This volume deals with sulphates, carbonates, phosphates and halides, incorporating recent advances in investigative techniques. Each mineral chapter has sections on structure, chemistry, optical and physical properties, distinguishing features and paragenesis. Chapters are headed with brief tabulations of mineral data and a sketch of optical orientation. Results are included from ocean floor experimentation and deep sea drilling.

Gesteine – wie sie heißen und wozu man sie verwenden kann Das vorliegende Buch vermittelt einen leicht verständlichen Überblick über das Gebiet der Petrographie. Einsteiger werden nicht durch theoretisches Detailwissen überfordert oder gar abgeschreckt, sondern erlangen schnell ein umfassendes Grundwissen in Mineralogie mit den wichtigsten gesteinsbildenden Mineralen, Petrographie mit den häufigsten Gesteinen, technischer Gesteinskunde mit den Eigenschaften der Gesteine, die für die Verwendung wichtig sind. Instruktive Fotos, Übersichten und Schaubilder erleichtern das Lernen und Verstehen. Sie sind ein hervorstechendes Merkmal des Werkes und machen es auch zu einem hilfreicher Begleiter für alle Praktiker und Wiedereinsteiger, die die Petrographie sonst eher selten benötigen. Durch die Teilung des Buches in einen klassisch-petrographischen und einen angewandten Teil kann jeder Nutzer selbst wählen, welche Gesichtspunkte der Gesteinskunde für ihn wichtig sind. Gesteinskunde – Ein Leitfaden für Einsteiger und Anwender richtet sich an Schüler und Studenten von Fach- und Hochschulen, an Profis wie Bauingenieure, Bohrer und Geowissenschaftler sowie an interessierte Laien. Dr. Ulrich Sebastian ist Geologe, Gegenstand seiner Doktorarbeit waren metamorphe Gesteine. Er unterrichtet an der Fachschule für Technik in Freiberg/Sachsen, wo Staatlich geprüfte Techniker für Geologie- bzw. Bohrtechnik ausgebildet werden.

Structured in the form of a dichotomous key, comparable to those widely used in botany, the mineral key provides an efficient and systematic approach to identifying rock-forming minerals in thin-section. This unique approach covers 150+ of the most commonly encountered rock-forming minerals, plus a few rarer but noteworthy ones. Illustrated in full colour, with 330+ high quality mineral photomicrographs from a worldwide collection of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks, it also provides a comprehensive atlas of rock-forming minerals in thin-section. Commencing with a brief introduction to mineral systems, and the properties of minerals in plane-polarised and cross-polarised light, the mineral key also includes line drawings, tables of mineral properties and an interference colour chart, to further aid mineral identification. To minimise the chance of misidentification, and enable less experienced petrologists to use the key with confidence, the key has been arranged to prioritise those properties that are most easily recognised. Designed for simplicity and ease of use, it is primarily aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students of mineralogy and petrology, but should also provide a valuable source of reference for all practising geologists dealing with rock thinsections and their interpretation.

Identificationof rock-forming minerals in thin section is a key skill needed by all earth science students and practising geologists. This translation of the completely revised and updated German second edition (by Leonore Hoke, Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences, New Zealand) provides a comprehensive guide to identifying 140 of the most important rock-forming mineral species. The book is divided into three main parts. Part A is a practical guide to the fundamentals of crystal optics, polarization microscopy and the practical use of microscopes. Part B gives a detailed description of the characteristic optical features, special features, and the paragenesis of the most common rock-forming minerals. This well-illustrated part is divided into opaque minerals, isotropic, uniaxial and optical biaxial mineral groups. Part C contains identification tables for the minerals and diagrams showing the international classification of magmatic rocks, as well as a colour plate section showing crystal forms of minerals. The book will provide an invaluable guide to all undergraduate earth scientists, as well as to professional geologists requiring an overview of mineral identification in thin section.

This book provides a very basic introduction to electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS). It has the largest compiled collection of EDS spectra ever published and covers most common rock forming minerals. In addition, it provides a key to help the novice wade through the large number of spectra.
